    Great lower the standards for women so they can get in. Awesome idea. Youre going to get them and their squad mates killed

    We should slam doors in their faces so that they stay alert.

    No. You get a better look at their ass when they walk by you.

    Yep!

    If a woman can hack it to the same standards a man in the same career field has to meet, then welcome on board. If she can't, she needs to find a new MOS.

    Soon as I read that they are going revamp the standards I said everyone in a squad with a woman who only meets the new standards is as good as dead

    So they aren't changing standards based on sex, they're lowering it for everything and everybody? Doesn't that go against the idea of having an 'elite' force?

    Basically they are lowering them to get woman in but saying they arent because its also going to allow men that would be considered a liability as well. This is going to get a lot of good soldiers killed. The standards are high for a reason. If being a liability meant only getting your head blown off standards would of been dropped 75yrs ago but it doesn't. Not only is your head going to be taken off but half of your squad mates as well trying to keep your stupid ass alive and then the rest of your squad trying to save the people that got killed trying to save you from getting killed.

    It doesn't say anything about lowering any of the requirements. Here's the quote again.
    It says that they're reviewing and revising shit in order to make sure that they have a minimum requirement in place. That could end up being a lowered standard, but as it stands now, it seems like they have no intention of lowering the standards. In fact, they're keeping exclusion as an option.
    If they lower the standards, I'll be right there with you condemning it, but until then, stop with the fearmongering and just observe.

    Women physically can't do SEAL training. If they get in, it'll be lowered standards.

    Why not? They've been doing it for years with
    minorities for cop and firemen positions.

    This fucking country is doomed and it's PC mentality
    will be the driving factor.

    Most men can't either. Statistically, in a nation of hundreds of millions, there has to be a few women that can and we could use them. They should at least be allowed to try. What annoys me the most about women in combat stories is that it's such an easy "problem" to solve; just throw the door open. The ones who can do it become SEALs/Rangers/Delta operators/whatever and the ones that can't don't. The problem literally solves itself. The only thing that needs addressing is the sexual harassment problem.

    I agree, and most of the callers I had today also agree. However, we know how these things ALWAYS go. They will lower standards.

    Throw the doors open and hope the one in a million gals who can do the training is actually in the Navy, has an interest in being a SEAL, and fits the time frame in her enlistment to qualify. Trouble is, the Navy still needs SEALs so while the works are gummed up with hundreds of GI Janes who think they can do it, right up to the point where the instructors make them dump beach sand in their OD Green panties, real male warriors are left out of training to make room for the failures. Each class will graduate fewer warriors and have higher dropout rates, but the need for SEALs stays high.

    Maybe have a female SEAL pre-qualifying class that is tough but fast to weed out the obvious wannabes before they fill the ranks of applicants.

    Which is what I'm saying. I dont care if they let women apply. I care if they lower the standards (which you know they will) because it will get people unnessessarily.

    They've tried this in the Marines already, albeit with a smaller group, infantry officers. Few female volunteers, and the ones they got washed out. How long before the discrimination lawsuit when the first female Ranger is RFSed?
